Kris Jenner and Robert Kardashian divorced many years ago, in 1991. Their marital break-up is not particularly news.
However, thanks to the FX series, American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson, new information was brought to light. Why did Kris Jenner and Robert Kardashian divorce? Kardashian alleged that Jenner was unfaithful.
A book By Jerry Oppenheimer, claims Robert Kardashian fell in love with Priscilla Presley before marrying Kris Jenner.
Robert Kardashian was an American attorney and businessman who shot to fame as he stood by close friend and American football star, OJ Simpson, during his 1995 murder trial. He was said to have a fortune of about $30 million.
According to The Kardashians: An American Drama, by Jerry Oppenheimer, before marrying Kris, Robert had fallen in love with Elvis’s ex-wife, Priscilla.
She was Robert’s first love, and they dated for about a year while she was divorced from the famous singer. Robert then married Kris, who got the life of luxury she’d always wanted.
Keeping up with Robert And Kris
There aren’t many people in American society who would not be at least a little familiar with the Kardashians.
Famous for being TV royalty and continuously in the tabloids, they pique the interest of many people who are fascinated merely by how they’ve become so well-known.
But the family would not be what they are now if matriarch Kris Jenner hadn’t married attorney and businessman Robert Kardashian. Kris was getting accustomed to the good life she always wanted, Robert was pining for the love of his life, Priscilla.
While Robert Kardashian wasn’t a kiss-and-tell kind of guy and stayed below the radar in the years before he became O.J. Simpson’s well-known mouthpiece, he couldn’t wait to tell his friends that he was involved with the former Mrs. Presley, a big-time romantic and sexual trophy for him.
Fortunately for Kris, Robert and Priscilla only dated for a year. They officially ended when Priscilla made it clear she wouldn’t remarry until Elvis was dead. Kris and Robert were married from 1978 till 1991 when they divorced.
If anything came out of it, Robert Kardashian was an amazing father.
During their 13-year-marriage, they had kids Kourtney, Kim, Khloé and Rob Kardashian. Robert died in 2003 eight weeks after being diagnosed with cancer at the age of 59.

Speaking with the Daily Mail's New You magazine just before the split news, Keeping Up With the Kardashians, mom revealed her one regret in life.
The one regret, if I had to do it over, would be divorcing Robert Kardashian. But then there wouldn't have been Kendall and Kylie, so that's the way I look at that. I don't have a lot of regrets.
